Now, with the 4K TV market share and 4K set-top-boxes seeing exponential growth, TV operators want to offer the best possible resolution (4K HDR High Dynamic Range) for their customers to enjoy the best ever viewing experience.

By offering the 4KUniverse channel to their customers, TV platforms and telcos alike can promote regularly scheduled 4K HDR broadcasts. It’s time for customers to unleash the full potential of their new TVs.”
